Awesome cooler

Have had the 45 for about three years and for the money it’s the best cooler on the market, I have the hard and soft coolers as well as tumblers.

I have had the RTIC 45 for about 3 years now. Love this cooler. I promise, if you've ever wanted a ******, but couldn't afford it "like me", then give this cooler a try. Only thing different is the name.

This chest is the best $$$ you will ever spend. I test drove it by filling if with ice and bottled water after 3 days of warm weather, I pulled the drain plug and got three drops of water. Buy one NOW!!!

I got my 45 cooler a few days ago and it does work well however as soon as I took it out of the box one of the stickers was already coming off for the money you pay for these things you would think Itvwould not come off without being use yet .

Best Line of Ice Chests Available

by - verified purchaser
Have had this product for close to 3 years now, and all I can say, is that it has performed the exact same way since I purchased it. No matter if keeping stuff ice cold, or even letting smoked meats wrapped in foil and towels set. They are as hot as they were coming off the smoker.

I have the Artic 45 cooler for over a year now. I just can't get over how well it stays cold. I do pre chill with frozen 2 liter bottles and then add ice I don't open very often when it is hot outside 95 or so but it keeps ice over 7 days

Great Coolers

by - verified purchaser
Bought the old style 45 and 65. Love them. They hold ice for 6-7 days in the summer. Have used at elk camp in Colorado twice, and a fly in fishing trip to Canada with dry ice and it keeps meats frozen for 5-7 days depending on the temps. Recently had my 45 stolen while camping and bought a new model. I don’t see many changes other than the extra drain plug which I think will be nice.

Replacement parts

Great cooler. Since buying mine several of my friends bought too. It sells itself. Unfortunately service after the sale not so great. I had issue with lid that I created. no fault of the cooler. I wanted to buy a lid and RTIC will not sell me new lid so now I have a $200 cooler that is a parts storage tub. Need new lid, the pin that holds it is not an issue, I have stainless suppliers locally that can help with that. Come on RTIC, help keep your coolers and customers happy!!!

Love my cooler

by - verified purchaser
I put ice in it at the beginning of the week and it keeps ice all week. And by the weekend the water is still freezing cold.

Cooler is a joke

Damage due to Rotomolding Process

by - verified purchaser
I received an RTIC 45 that was damaged from the rotomolding process. One of the corners has a noticeable dent and the bottom is scratched up. It looks like I was sent a used or B Stock cooler (reassured that it was new just beat up). I’ve contacted customer service and was told that this is normal due to the manufacturing process. Other brands such as ******, Cordova and Otterbox do not seem to have these issues when viewing them in-store. We are very disappointed in RTIC.

I have a 20 and 45 both are awesome coolers the only thing that would make them better is if their was a portable dolly that would adapt to all sizes when they get packed with goodies and get heavy to wheel around easily .

Rtic 45..

by - verified purchaser
This thing is the bomb. It is perfect for the trunk or the back seat of my truck. I did my own test with it and it holds ice for five days in the back of my service truck at 100+ degrees every day on the fifth day in the afternoon I will need to add ice. We have took my 45 and 65 both on a camping weekend trip and up there it was down to 35 degrees early in the morning and 68-72 in the afternoon and when it was over with I only drained out about 32- 45 ounces of water and still plenty plenty of ice left over. We both love these coolers now that we don’t have to leave gods country to get more ice

Awesome Cooler!!!!!

by - verified purchaser
My wife gave me the RTIC 45 cooler for my birthday 2 years ago. I absolutely love this cooler. I live in southern Alabama and it holds ice in the middle of July (98*+) for 5 days and then the ice water is still cold for 4 or 5 more days in the back of my truck!! I'm a avid Crappie fisherman and I wish that RTIC would make a live bait bucket or cooler with optional aerator. I think I will order the RTIC 20 and make it my minnow cooler, I can set it up with a battery operated water pump bait aerator which like I did with an old Igloo cooler years ago. This should hold my minnows and shiners for several days when at the lake fishing. Well worth every cent!! Thanks RTIC for a Great product!!
